In conclusion, risk factors for bacteremia secondary to CAB have not been positively identified. However, weak evidence suggests that clinicians should be especially mindful of male patients who have received immunosuppressant medications or red blood cell transfusion, those not receiving antimicrobials, and those with neutropenia, malignancy, or liver disease. These patients should be targeted for daily monitoring and early removal of urinary catheters.
